Within the next month or two months I am thinking about getting my first mechanical keyboard to replace my membrane one.
I am currently using a cooler master octane keyboard and while it does the job okay I have noticed its performance is not as good as it was about a two or so ago when I got it and while its membranes still probably have life to them I have been considering going mechanical for a while handing this keyboard down as it is still quite functional.
But going mechanical is quite pricey if you want actual name brands like Corsair or Razer and even cooler master and others seem to be $100 and above.
I have looked at a few options and most seem fair for the price but there is nothing wrong with asking for a second opinion.
 
 
Pros: aluminum base, brown switches
Cons: no dedicated media keys, could be a problem on linux
 
 
Pros: aluminum base, media keys
Cons: blue switches, may be too loud as my walls are paper thin

Pros: aluminum base
Cons: No dedicated media keys plus blue switches

Pros: brown switches, media controls
Cons: a bit high on price
 
Pros: aluminum base
Cons: no media controls, blue switches
 
Pros: metal base, red switches
Cons: no dedicated media keys.
 
There are more I am sure but these are the ones that seem they would do the job for me, though the blue switches may be a bad idea.
I can live without media keys but it would be nice to have them.
I just want something with RGB, has decent build quality and decent switches.
Heck it can be made of plastic and i will be cool with it as long as the switches are not too loud.

You know you want me baby!
